Paganini played on guitar sounds simply exquisite

Chaccone Klaverenga has transformed one of Paganini's most popular and difficult works for violin into a masterpiece for a very different member of the string family...

Paganini's Caprice No. 24 in A minor is considered one of the most difficult pieces ever written for solo violin. With its fast fingerwork, angular intervals, string crossing, pizzicato and lightning-fast scales it's the musical equivalent of a high-wire act.

But none of that fazed classical guitarist Chaccone Klaverenga, a young musician from Indiana, who has transcribed the violin showpiece into a guitar masterpiece in its own right. Bravo!
